Key Developments:

Rapid advances in technology, intense competition, and changing dynamics in the market are the key factors for the intense competition among vendors. 
With the rising competition, the market will see consolidation. However, manufacturing complexities and high production costs pose significant risk factors for vendors in the market. 

The evolving API manufacturing scenario in developing countries is notably driving market growth.:

India and China emerge as key sources for drug intermediates and bulk process intermediates (BPI). Historically, Chinese companies focused on low-cost drugs, while India and China now produce high-quality APIs and intermediates for regulated markets. Innovators outsource late-stage intermediates to these countries, forming joint ventures with local manufacturers. Despite this, developing countries are increasingly significant in API production, with a growing focus on continuous manufacturing for cost-effective and sustainable solutions. This trend is poised to drive market expansion in the forecast period.

Increasing demand for continuous manufacturing in the biopharmaceutical industry is an emerging trend shaping the market growth.  
High initial investment associated with pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing is a significant challenge hindering market growth. 

Technavio has identified key trends, drivers, and challenges in the market, which will help clients improve their strategies to stay ahead of their competitors.
